The brand new Honda Jazz Crosstar has been alongtime coming courtesy of global events, but was it worth the wait? 

Oh yes.

This is not your stereotypical Jazz, and may well attract a younger audience with it's funky looks and impressive styling and of course the addition an offroad style bodykit.

It's a bit of a beast and looks quite a bit different to the standard Jazz.

It's powered by the same powertrain, yes like the Jazz there is one to choose from the e:HEV which comprises of a 1.5 iVTEC engine, 2 high energy electric motors -one to charge and one to propel and an eCVT.

It does have a range of additions for the extra price including water repellant funky interior, 30mm higher ride height allowing you to be alittle more adventurous on your extreme picniccing and of course uprated infotainment system.

Safety has also been notched up with the Honda sensing suite which includes adaptive cruise control, collision detection and hanow has 10 airbags.

The baby crossover come Citycar retails for just over £22,600.

Please enjoy and we've just had a Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross delivered, sadly one the last cars we'll ever get from the Colt Car Company due to Mitsubishi pulling out of Europe.
